A New Be[nto]ginning

So, I'm not sure if any of y'all have heard of bento- it's from Japan, and it's a way of packing a lunch. [Pretty much] I discovered http://www.anotherlunch.com/ and read her entire blog. Realized that bento is pretty flippin cool, as is Melissa. :) She inspired me to purchase some fake bento boxes while at Walmart today & give bento a try. If I seriously like it, I might look into purchasing some actual bento boxes via the internet. Anyhow, the horse day camp for the little kiddies starts tomorrow, and since I'm helping out, I need to bring a lunch. So just now, I buckled down and made my first bento box. :D Remember I have next to no clue what I'm doing, so check out anotherlunch for the real scoop on bento & let me know what you think.

Without further ado, my first bento lunch:

Alright, so starting on the top left and working our way down...

-Turkey & swiss on a fresh baguette roll

-Baby carrots

-Fiber chocolate bar


-Lemon cake w/strawberries

-Swiss cheese dino

Who's amazing? Me.


PS: My riding instructor, Laura, had her daughter a few days ago. Baby McKenna has serious heart problems & was rushed into emergency surgery today. Please pray for her & keep her in your thoughts.

well, sorry i guess

alright, you want real. here's the real life thing-

i'm not more important than you.

you're also not more mature than me. i know you feel like it, but honestly? guess what i'm tired of.

people posting stuff on the internet instead of talking to me.

i'm not mad. i'm just frustrated.

i wasn't dissing you, or your extracurricular activities;
i was being a teenager and joking around. if you can't handle that...
i'm sorry. i guess i'll stop.

whatever. i guess i'm done. i'm sorry, people.

i'm not perfect. not even close.
